Mike CullyManjimup-Bridgetown Times

The Manjimup Senior High School team Aim High has won the 2018 Mitre 10 Retravision Corporate Bowls with a convincing win over the Apex TBO team at Manjimup Country Club on Thursday.

Apex were the inaugural winners of the Corporate Bowls Shield back in 1996, but were unable to back it up in 2018.

It was Aim High’s second win in three years. The team consisted of Steve Miolin, Tim Blee, Sue Edwards and Stephen Hill.

Two teams, the Bowling Stones and Cheeky Cherries played off for the wooden spoon.

The B green was the venue for a number of spirited grudge matches which were played at the same time as the finals, with bragging rights acquired by some.
